Managing file tree

Edit on GitHub

This article describes how to manage the file tree.

The File Tree section is used to upload the files, create or delete the directories and manage the order of files and directories.

Prerequisites

If there are no MIME types defined in the MIME Type Settings section, you will be able to download any type of file. If you have at least one MIME type defined as Is Allowed, you will be able to download only the files of that type unless you add more allowed types. See Managing MIME Type Settings for more details.

To start working with file tree elements, navigate to Content > File Tree section.
